On most automobile accident cases that involve another vehicle that is not owned by a municipality or controlled by a municipality where the statutes of limitation and the deadline for filing would be much shorter. Typically, these claims fall under negligence. So all of the claims involving automobile accidents that are not with municipalities would have to be brought within three years from the date of the accident.
